Brighten Your Smile This Spring

March 26, 2024

Do you want to enjoy a smile that shines this spring? Then talk to our team about ways to remove or mask teeth stains. Our team can help you understand the factors behind your discoloration, and offer care to address it and brighten teeth by several shades. In today’s blog, your Lake Orion, MI, dentist talks about cosmetic dentistry and teeth whitening.

Two Teeth Whitening Selections

Our team offers two different teeth whitening options, both of which provide more dramatic and long-lasting results than store bought options. In-office teeth whitening is a treatment that brightens smiles by several shades in only one to two hours. Our team will accomplish this by placing a bleaching gel onto the front of the teeth and activating it with a light, removing stains in one visit. We also have an at-home option, which involves creating a set of custom plastic trays that fit over the teeth. The trays will be sent home with you, along with a powerful bleaching gel. At home, you fill the trays with gel and wear them for a specific amount of time per day, over the course of one to two weeks. For some, teeth could be eight shades brighter, and the risk of tooth sensitivity is lowered too.

Dental Bonding

The teeth whitening treatments we discussed above often address extrinsic stains, or the discoloration that forms on the surfaces of your teeth. But what if you have intrinsic stains, the kind that form beneath the enamel? These could resist traditional treatment options, but we can still brighten your smile in one visit! With dental bonding, we use the same composite resin employed as part of our tooth-colored fillings. We shade it to blend with your smile and apply it in several layers. As the layers cure beneath a light, we will sculpt the material to ensure optimal results and a balanced bite. We then polish the tooth for a brighter appearance!

Porcelain Veneers

Our team could also mask permanent teeth stains with porcelain veneers, thin restorations that are custom-made for your smile and that fit over the front of the teeth. Along with masking discoloration, we can address misshapen or damaged teeth, lengthen worn down teeth, close gaps between teeth, and even correct the appearance of minor misalignment. If you have any questions about how our team can mask or remove teeth stains with cosmetic dentistry, then contact our team today to learn more. We want to help your smile shine for months to come!
